Mifepristone is used for medical termination of an early pregnancy. It is also used to control excessive blood sugar level in patients with Cushing's syndrome (a disease where the hormone cortisol rises in the body due to tumour of adrenal gland) in patients who have failed surgery or are not candidates for surgery.

How it works

Mifepristone is an anti-progesterone hormone that acts by blocking the effects of progesterone, a hormone which is needed for pregnancy to continue.

Common side effects

Vomiting, Nausea, Altered menstrual cycle, Joint pain, Diarrhoea, Dizziness, Fatigue, Headache, Decreased potassium level in blood, Insomnia, Limb swelling, Loss of appetite, Weakness


Misoprostol is used to prevent gastric ulcers resulting from treatment with pain-killers/NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, naproxen, indomethacin). It is also used for medical termination of pregnancy or legal abortion during early pregnancy, along with mifepristone.

How it works

Misoprostol is similar to the natural chemical prostaglandin found in the body. It acts on the stomach and intestine to create a protective lining, and thereby prevents ulcer formation. It also acts on the uterus and produces strong contractions and softens the cervix to cause abortion.

Common side effects

Constipation, Flatulence, Headache, Indigestion, Stomach pain, Vomiting, Diarrhoea

Expert advice for FESTONE

  • In case of heavy and prolonged bleeding, or if the expulsion has occurred before you took prostaglandin, you should contact the doctor immediately to ensure complete evacuation.
  • If pregnancy continues or expulsion is incomplete, you will be offered another method for terminating the pregnancy.
  • Do not take mifepristone If  you are allergic (hypersensitive) to the active substance mifepristone or prostaglandin (if required to be taken  together) any of the other ingredients of the medicine.
  • Because mifepristone may pass into breast milk and be taken in by your baby, you should stop in case you were breastfeeding once you have taken the treatment.
